Things We Miss

How many times have you been somewhere and later realized, I never saw that?





San Francisco, California




Little did I know at the time I was shooting these pictures, but a little Robin was following me around.




Things we miss, are often times the very things, folks put out on display.  Just for us to see.



But sometimes those wagon wheels-


leaning against a building go, unnoticed.



Unless of course, you're making it your mission to uncover wagon wheels.

Bet you wouldn't, shouldn't or couldn't miss this wagon wheel fence.



But good luck spotting the wagon wheel in this photo below.


Closer look?












Moving in for a closer look.




and last but certainly not least



Walking through an alley between houses in Minneapolis I caught sight of a strange thing to spot in someone's backyard.  What do we have hiding behind these shrubs?

I think it happens to most of us most of the time, Karen. I think taking photos helps me a little to focus on what's out there, but I still miss a lot.

I think that beautiful statue would be hard to miss but I get the main point. we do a lot of research before we visit an area, to hopefully learn about the must see's and the don't bother's!!! but it happens to everyone. it's just a great excuse to go back and re-visit!!!

beautiful gardens!!!!
